I was wondering if there was a way to fix this behaviour that I am seeing?
// // this is an example where I want to filter the dataview on the variable blah that contains "a" // assume that in the dataview, the currently selected item before the filter call will also be in the list after // console.log ("PreFilter selection: " + dataViewObject.getSelected()); // display currently selected dataViewObject.filter("#blah#", "a"); console.log ("PostFilter selection: " + dataViewObject.getSelected()); // will display nothing, selection was lost
what is happening there is that after calling “filter”, the results are filtered, but the call to getSelected() now return nothing, but in the dataview UI, the item is still selected… this is a big problem if you are trying to have some logics that expect the item to be selected. Also, if you then select something else, you can end-up with 2 selected items, even if you set it to have only 1 selection…
any help here would be appreciate, it would be nice to be able to rely on the getSelected() to actually not lose it’s value after “filter” is called
